The superhero ensemble continues its march towards the record books as “Avengers: Infinity War” tops the weekend box-office once again, surpassing the $1B faster than any movie in history.

According to estimates, $1.16 billion worldwide so far as of this weekend, which place it number 15 on the all-time list merely 11 days since its global release. “Avengers: Infinity War” opens in China next weekend, its final location.

Domestically, it continues to be unchallenged, with an estimated $112.4 million from playing in 4,474 locations in its sophomore weekend for a North American total of $450.8 million 10 days since release.

The success of “Avengers: Infinity War” has helped propelled Walt Disney Studios’ boxoffice to $3B so far this year, which according to Deadline is another record, beating the benchmark set by the studio two years ago when Captain America: Civil War, Zootopia and The Jungle Book ruled the charts in that year’s first five months.
